We had a blast at this year’s Southern Women's Show here in Richmond, VA this past weekend! Unbeknownst to show vendors, we scoured the entire show for this year’s winners of our O-fficial Awards for the Cutest, Funniest and Yummiest items at the show, plus an Honorable Mention.
On Sunday we informed the winners and invited them to be with us live on-air on the main stage from the Southern Women’s Show for a special one-hour radio show. It was a bit like a moving circus, but we got to chat with each one of them.
PLUS, our home and small office efficiency expert Susie Hayman shared the one tip that’s key to a smooth running small business (the answer may surprise you)!
Susie Hayman: Home & Small Office Efficiency Expert
Cutest Award Winner: Modern Mary
Seema S. Sahin, owner of Modern Mary carried the cutest Asian-inspired jackets that were both cute and soooo affordable! Co-host Mary picked out a white one with grey and black trim to go with her red pants.
Yummiest Award Winner: DePree Rum Cakes
The idea of cakes with liquor was already attractive, but when we heard Gene Dolata talk about how they were made, saw all the flavors, and then tasted them, we knew we found the Yummiest Award Winner!
Gene was so jazzed about the award that he arranged a 20% discount for all Girlfriend We Gotta Talk radio show listeners! Just enter the word GIRLFRIEND in all CAPS as the coupon code when ordering online. We hear that 20% off the price means 20% fewer calories, too. We believe ‘em!
Not long ago we had our Chocolate, Wine & Luuv Party, so it's no surprise that when we happened upon a whole collection of hand painted wine glasses we were drawn like bees to honey. But, these glasses were like no other we'd ever seen and made us howl! Hubby Greg Baetje shared how his wife Christy came up with the idea.
Honorable Mention: LipSense
Kristin Stanges is an independent distributor with Senegence Cosmetics, a complete line of cosmetics and skin care, but what we love, love, love the most is their LipSense line of long lasting lip color that looks great, doesn't dry our lips, and really stays on for hours!
Brenda Venable & Alison Johnson of ParBella Dresses for Girls
We just had to say something about this mother and daughter team next to the Modern Mary booth who were so friendly and helpful to watch Seema's booth while she was on-air. These kind of girlfriends are the best!
We had fun hanging out with you in your Skirt Lounge and love our new photo strip!
